Cub Foods Deals Thread
Most Cub Foods stores will take expired coupons (manufacture only!) up to three months (90 days) after expiration. The following Cub stores are exceptions: Hastings & Eden Prairie (5 months), St. Cloud (does not accept expired coupons). Cambridge Cub accepts expired coupons up to 60 days.
If you do not have a Cub Foods near you, but you do have an awesome coupon that expired on you, this is the place to trade or pass it on!
- Out of stock store coupons
If a product in the store is on sale, or has a coupon, but they do not have any in stock, ask your cashier for a rain check. You'll then be able to come back any time within the next 30 days and get that item at sale price.
Checking policies vary from store to store (it is greatly dependent on the type of neighborhood it's in). This policy is generally VERY strict to prevent people from using fake checks/checks from non-existent accounts.
First 1-3 times you use a check from a new checking account you'll be asked for an ID. The ID must not be expired, and must have a matching name/address to the one on the check. If it is a small amount (<$30), then generally they will ignore the rule and let you slide with a different address.
No cash back on first 1-3 checks. Maximum amount of $125 on first 1-3 checks (can be overridden by CSM if they don't think you're trying to scam them).
After that, you are in the system. From then on ID is not required for checks, just simply hand it to the cashier and go bag! You can then get cash back (varies GREATLY on location, Brookdale is $10 maximum, other places $25 and even $50). Maximum is then $300 per check, but again this can be overridden by a CSM.
Out of state checks are not accepted. Depending on the location (in the ghetto, they're more strict on this), you may be asked why you're shopping there if the address on your check is >40-50 miles away from the store. Travels checks are not accepted as of a few months ago.
- Credit/debit cards
If you don't want to pay for the full total on a single credit card, tell them this ahead of time! If you slide your card through and they hit the button, your credit card is charged BEFORE you sign!
If you slide the card through and it says "Please wait" instead of asking for your PIN, then you are one of the unfortunate banks that can't be used as debit (TCF is notorious for this). You then can't get cash back.
Maximum $50 cash back from debit cards.
If the order is $25 or less you don't need to sign. Over that and you'll need to sign and you might be asked to show both your card and ID to cashier.
